Over the years Orion’s Quest has been blessed to work with many Principal Investigators who have generously agreed to give students the opportunity to not only look at their research but actually participate in it in some way.
These are exciting times as we add a new OQ mission based on cancer research being conducted on the International Space Station. This mission will add to the long list of opportunities available for engaging students in authentic space-based research. Check out these OQ PI’s;
